DeleD is now open source!

As of January 15, 2010 both DeleD PRO and DeleD LITE are discontinued. Instead the new DeleD CE (CE stands for Community Edition) has been launched. DeleD CE is based upon the DeleD PRO Delphi source code and is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

Post subject:  Virtual Print Engine by Ideal Software

Virtual Print Engine is to my mind one of the best 3rd party tools for printing I have used for years. It can produce reports in pdf, HTML and OpenOffice using their extensive API. I have found the tool to be quick and very reliable. So if you are looking for tools to produce reports, charts etc. then have a look at http://www.IdealSoftware.com

A couple of usable things :-)

HxD - Freeware Hex Editor and Disk Editor.
by Maël Hörz:

MPRESS, a free, high-performance executable packer for
PE32/PE32+/.NET/MAC-DARWIN executable formats!

FreeArc - FreeArc is a modern general-purpose archiver.
Main advantage of FreeArc is fast but efficient compression and rich set of features.

CopyRat is a simple, free program for backing up your files that I use to copy 'everything' to
some of my portable USB drives.

CopyRat can also run from the commandline (or batch scripts)
to backup files without the window interface.

CopyRat was created by PureBasic's "kenmo" (Ryan Touk)


; ==============================================================
Another gem that I use to compare files...


Freeware Visual File Comparison Tool
• Automatically detects file changes
• One-click re-compare
• Drag and drop support
• Easy navigation and search
• Command line interface
• Fully customizable

For icons I'm using "@icon sushi"
It can compose any icon from set of your PNG or other images, alpha channels supported.

"Resource Hacker" and "CFF explorer" are nice free tools to edit other resources within executables (the second is more to edit PE header data).
"UPX" to compress binaries.

"Winlister" to track any existing window or it's parameters (to read and edit windows styles - "WS viewer", but I didn't posted this yet ^^)

"Process Hacker" - very cool tool with wide range of functions, including network connection monitor, disk I/O monitor and lot more to examine application activity and resource consumption. More functional replacement for windows task manager and "Process Explorer" from SysInternals (now MS)

KEL CHM Creator v.
An excellent CHM help file creation tool. It's at least as good as a commercial product that I forked out a lot of money for two years ago. You can find it here: https://dumah7.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/kel-chm-creator-v-1-4-0-0/

This product was previously mentioned elsewhere on this forum before, but no link was provided.

PS: It requires Microsoft HTML Help Workshop ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21138 ).

Here's yet another help authoring tool called "HelpMaker". What makes this tool different is you don't have to start with an external tool to create HTML or Word documents. Instead, you can use its built-in WYSIWYG features to build the help file step-by-step.

It generates a CHM file as the final output.

Download it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/helpmaker/

This help authoring tool is also free.

Found this today, very useful piece of kit. A debug output tool which outputs everything thats happening (well, just the errors really) but it can be extremely useful when using external DLL's and similar things. Best of all, its free, and all you have to do is execute it then execute your program, and the errors will be caught in the output window.

It's called DebugView v4.31 (at the moment)

Click on 'Utilities' for the version of Windows you use:


I've been using this since the XP era. It came bundled with a customized version of XP for my alien-ware PC. Great program!
